Norman Granz' Jazz in Montreux: Roy Eldridge '77

1977 NR

One of music's most influential men in the 20th century, Norman Granz brought live jazz to the masses with his "Jazz at the Philharmonic" concert series. Producing some of the great names in the genre, such as Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie, he became a legend in every aspect of the jazz music scene. Commemorating Granz's innovations at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1977, noted trumpeter Roy Eldridge takes the stage.
